Trade show blog: use technology to get ahead

What you’ve been reading is true. Freelancers in all walks of the business world are changing the way the economy works. That’s right, this has never happened before. Many people who have been in the workforce for years are seeking out careers with flexibility in mind; enough people to change the way businesses seek out talent. 20 years ago about 93% of the workforce was considered full time staff. The ranks of the self-employed have held relatively steady over the past few years. In 2009, 15.3 million Americans identified themselves as self-employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In October 2012, 14.9 million U.S. workers were self-employed.
